The long-rumored relaunch of Green Lantern has officially been announced. IGN reports that Grant Morrison will be writing the series, with Wonder Woman artist Liam Sharp providing the art. The series, titled simply The Green Lantern, will focus on Hal Jordan’s role as a space cop, with the first arc involving escaped intergalactic prisoners and Morrison describing the series as being “like a police procedural”. Sharp’s art in the preview pages looks as detailed and lush as ever, and he’s sure to have a field day with whatever Morrison throws his way.
Details are light on when the new series will launch or how long the team’s planned run on the title will be. For now check out the the preview images below, and check back with The Beat for more information as it becomes available.
